            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Comfortable bed; location convenient to UC Berkeley

              The room and bathroom were very small. The room wasn't very quiet. The maid failed to clean the room during the 2-hr time frame we requested, so was still cleaning the room when we returned. The hotel is not as luxurious as the web photos convey.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              The facility was uniquely decorated and reflected well the history of the area. It was a great way to reacquaint myself about Berkeley, and teach my children about its history and culture.

            • Single
              7.0

              Comfortable, very very friendly and helpful staff, near campus, free wifi (slowish).

              hairs on towel and bathroom floor...

            • Couple
              8.2

              Very helpful & courteous staff, location in berkeley is excellent

              Its a very old hotel so has Very bad sound insulation, changed rooms 3 times but always a lot of noise from next door rooms or water pipes running outside the rooms

            • Family with children
              7.0

              Excellent location

              toilet set up not enough space (no space) to put personal toilertries

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              the staff was very nice and helpful

              the acoustic was terrible you can hear everything from the next rooms and corridor

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              It was really near center of cal, and as I had friends to visit, who are living there (in the university), it was easy to meet them and be near them. The hotel staff was really helpful and nice, they were trying to make us feel as welcome as they could. The room was big and spacious and the bathroom as well.

              Having in mind that hotel is in California, it would be expected to have a air conditioning system, however, this was not the case. There was just a that was supposed to keep the room cool, which didn't really help. Another issue that hotel could fix is the fact that the water pressure is really low so it took me more time than I spend usually under the shower to wash my hair etc.

            • Single
              7.8

              Liked the feel of the hotel, older building, large room.

              Bathrooms need updating. The elegance and attractiveness of older hotels is when the infrastructure is updated.

            • Single
              7.4

              The location and food

              The noise of those beside my room and up my room I can hear them walking and talking

            • Single
              10.0

              Very charming interior design, very nice setting

            • Family with children
              9.0

              Front Desk staff was extremely helpful and sharp.

              The room was excessively dark even with the lights on. The main light switch had been removed.

            • Single
              5.0

              Casual atomosfair in an academic environment near UCB.

              Historic and classic, but a little too old facilities for a comfortable stay.

            • Single
              6.6

              I was not pleased with the hotel. It was very poorly sound proofed. I could hear quite well the people on the floor above me walking across their room and also hear the room next door very readily. Bathroom was very small; sink was much smaller than standard size. The heat was by radiator and no controls so room was very warm. While window opened, it faced the delivery area of the neighboring dormitory so could hear trucks in the alley if I had left it open to cool the place. Some furnishings were old; desk was modern tacky computer desk which did not fit the decor at all.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Thin walls. Could the children above run around and the snoring man in the next room.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Very friendly folks.

              They should have free breakfast. Or at least free hot water, coffee, tea in the morning.
